I can't find a pdf, only asp on that site.

Sounds like your program associations got messed up. Just reassociate a program with a file type.

moved to Operating Systems and Software

Have you tried using TweakUI to rebuild your icon cache?

The PDF worked jsut fine with acrobat v4. What version of acrobat and internet browser are you using. YOu might want to try to find a different PDF on a different site and see if that works for you.
